Madison Square Garden unveiled images Monday of the new scoreboard that will hang from the ceiling when the final phase of the building's renovation is open to the public Friday for the Bobcats-Knicks preseason game. The scoreboard is the centerpiece of the GardenVision video display system and includes 24 individual high-definition LED displays, curved to maximize visibility.

The video display can be used to show one image all the way around or be divided into separate screens showing a variety of images, the Garden said in a news release.

The Garden said the scoreboard is one of two such structures in sports facilities that features LED displays located on the inside bottom for the benefit of those seated in lower sections of the bowl.
